This is a modest hotel with very typical design and an acceptable price. The room was clean, the bed was clean, the hallways and the lobby were clean. The parking garage was perhaps just a parking garage, although it is nice to have parking right at the hotel in downtown Charlottesville. The staff was very friendly and helpful. So while... More

The rooms were clean and roomy. However the hallways and elevators are so outdated they are almost creepy. The lady at check-in was very nice. We stayrd because we were taking daughter to UVA Hospital, it is very convenient to hospital. Could actually see hospital from room.

Hi Marsha, Thank you for taking time to post a review on Trip Advisor. The elevators and hallways are going to be addressed toward the end of this year and into 2015. As a matter of fact, the hotel will be having more changes taking place regarding rooms and facilities. I do hope you will revisit us when these improvements... More

My sister and I, and our parents have stayed at the Red Roof Inn near the UVA Hospital several times in the past couple of months. Our last stay was from Sunday thru Tuesday...we had requested rooms together, we even reminded the person working the desk that we wanted rooms together, so what did they do they gave us Room...

Imagine getting a call 3 days before your reservation saying "hey we screwed up with our rate" and we're glad to be able to offer you a rate at 3x the original price. This is what happened to me. I then showed up and was given a key to my hotel room...where another couple was already in the room. Needless... More

hoping you never have someone in the UVa Hospital (right across the street) but the location of this red roof inn eliminates that entire additional anxiety from the misery. AND they have a discount for people with hospital-associated stays. the location relative to the University itself and the Main Street of restaurants, bars/pubs, a CVS is also fantastic. you can...

Dear Judith Thank you for providing a review of the hotel. I hope all went well for you at the hospital. As you mentioned we are in a prime location for access to the hospital and the University of Virginia. Your suggestion to promote the "green services" will become more emphasized in our training program for staff. We will also... More

This Main Street location was optimal for our needs - very convenient to bars, restaurants and the University. Beyond that, it is a fairly modest property. Though the rooms were fine, neither they nor the common areas were anything special.

Ace4444, Thank you for utilizing Trip Advisor to post your review of the Red Roof Inn Charlottesville. Though we would hope to achieve higher scores the assessment will be taken as a training tool. The location is fantastic, and we will be going through renovations on the hotel very soon and into 2015. As management personnel though, I want to... More

Decided to stay the weekend after a UVA football game, so chose this hotel because of its location near the University and Corner. The room was fairly clean, although my girlfriend was a little apprehensive. The bed was sleepable and the shower/bathroom was acceptable although it showed its age. The maintenance man had to search through about four remote controls... More

The Red Roof Inn is one of the few reasonably priced hotels in downtown Chancellorsville. Nothing special, but clean, well-situated, courteous hosts and staff, fully satisfactory. No in-hotel dining, but there is a Mellow Mushroom outside the lobby, and an excellent coffee shop -- Shenandoah Joe's, just around the corner.

This hotel is a regular -good value hotel. Rooms are large, and the location is great for visiting the university ---in fact it could not be better as it is right by the front of the university. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants very near by and there is a FREE courtesy shuttle from the university that runs to... More

If you are not picky, skimping on your budget, or won't be in your room much, you might want to stay here. Otherwise, spring for the extra $20-$30 per day to stay up the street at the Courtyard Marriott or the Hampton Inn. The front desk staff is plenty nice, but the overall experience is not great-to-yucky.

Dear Kerry S. I truly am sorry that the Inn is showing its age. However as a service professional I am very disappointed to read that we did not meet your expectations in housekeeping issues and for that I sincerely apologize on behalf of the entire team here. I also regret that we were not able to sense your discontent... More
